The revolutionary, New York
Times 
bestselling guide to the powerful lifestyle changes that
fight and prevent cancer—an integrative approach based on the
latest scientific research

 
“A
common-sense blueprint for healthy living.” —Chicago
Tribune

 
“Resonating with
cancer support communities and recommended nationwide.”
Los Angeles Times

 
“Life
affirming . . . filled with practical advice.” —The
Seattle Times

 
David Servan-Schreiber was a rising
neuroscientist with his own brain imaging laboratory when, in the
middle of an equipment test, he discovered a tumor the size of a walnut
in his own brain. Forced to confront what medicine knows about cancer,
and all that we still do not know, Servan-Schreiber marshaled his will
to live and set out to understand the complex inner workings of the
body’s natural cancer-fighting capabilities. He soon found himself
on a decades-long journey from disease and relapse into scientific
exploration and, finally, a new view of health.
 

Anticancer is at once the moving story of one doctor’s
inner and outer search for wellness and a radical exposition of the
roles that lifestyle, environment, and trauma play in our health.
Drawing on the latest research in integrative medicine that blends
conventional and alternative approaches, Servan-Schreiber concisely
explains what makes cancer cells thrive, what inhibits them, and how we
can empower ourselves to prevent their growth. His advice details how to
develop a science-based anticancer diet (and the small changes that can
make a big difference); how to reap the benefits of exercise, yoga, and
meditation; which toxic, unsafe products to replace in your home; and
how to stave off the effects of helplessness and unhealed wounds to
regain balance.
 
Anticancer’s synthesis of
science and personal experience marks a transformation in the way we
understand and confront cancer. A long-running bestseller that has
changed the lives of millions around the world, Anticancer
remains a pioneering and peerless resource, an inspirational and
revolutionary guide to “a new way of life.”

Life changing for me
It came as a total shock when I found out I had a brain tumor in October, 2009. I am a non-smoker, a vegetarian, I've always been slim and I exercised 3-4 days a week. I'd seen this book before my diagnosis and thought it looked good, but didn't buy it. I thought I didn't need it.

Once I realized the author also had brain cancer and had been able to keep it in check for over 15 years through diet and other means, I knew this was the book for me. If you want to learn how to do something, go to someone who has done it! So I bought the book. It's an easy read and is backed up by scientific research and 28 pages of footnotes in case you want to learn more. The book is very specific in its recommendations.

I took the plunge around Christmas, 2009 and have been following the diet ever since. I underwent a year of chemotherapy treatments at the same time. During that time I periodically had MRI's that showed the tumor was shrinking. The tumor has continued to shrink even after I finished chemotherapy in January, 2011, so the diet change and supplements are having the intended effect.

Reading this book and changing what I eat has been incredibly empowering for me. I thought I knew a lot about nutrition before, but I learned some important things from Dr. Servan-Schreiber:

- Vegetables to eat daily (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, all cabbages)
- Good oils to use (olive and canola)
- Spices to add (garlic, ginger, turmeric)

I also learned some sobering facts about sugar (see page 61):

"The German biologist Otto Heinrick Warburg won the Nobel Prize in medicine for his discovery that the metabolism of malignant tumors is largely dependent on glucose consumption. (Glucose is the form of digested sugar in the body.) In fact the PET scan commonly used to detect cancer simply measures the areas in the body that consume the most glucose. If a particular area stands out because it consumes too much sugar, cancer is very likely the cause."

I never thought I could kick the sugar habit, but after the first two weeks it wasn't hard. I found substitutes to feed my sweet tooth - berries, fruits, cinnamon, stevia, and baker's chocolate (which is unsweetened) with any of the above.

If you have the right motivation I believe you can do just about anything. My plan is to live well and long!

UPDATE:
March 2, 2018 - It has been over eight years since my first symptoms of an oligodendroglioma appeared. My tumor shrank considerably, from over 5 cm to about 2.5 cm over 5-6 years. If it were not in the brain, this would be called remission, but in the brain it's called regression. During the past year it has started to grow again, at first slowly and now more aggressively in one area.

For me, nutrition is still a key factor in how I live my life and maintain my health. There is plenty of scientific evidence to support this (see How Not to Die by Dr. Michael Greger or his nonprofit website, NutritionFacts.org). Health is determined by so many other factors. What we eat is simply one of these.

My Cancer Fighting Bible
This is THE book to have if you or someone you love has cancer. When my husband was diagnosed with incurable, stage IV kidney cancer, I wanted to do anything in my power to keep him healthy for as long as possible. I'm in charge of the cooking, so that's where I started. His oncologist and dietician told us we didn't need to change his diet. That was pretty shocking to me, I've always believed if you feed your body healthy things, it will be better able to fight disease. While we were cheking out after seeing the doctor, one of his nurses quietly said to me, "Sugar feeds cancer. Cut out the sugar." That sent me on an all out search for the best cancer diet I could manage - and I knew I wasn't going to get it from hospital staff. I found this book just randomly searching the web, and it was the only book I needed to buy. I bought several more, but "Anticancer: A New Way of Life" has been, far and beyond, the most informative and motivating thing I've read. Thanks to David Servan-Schreiber, I have slowly, but steadily removed cancer-feeding foods from our home. We no longer use cleaning supplies or hygene products with toxic ingredients. My husband is still with us after two years of fighting, and is still doing pretty well. I have personally gotten much healthier and dropped 20 pounds by cutting out the bad stuff.
My copy is dog-eared and written in. I've got notes on most of the pages and lots of things are highlighted. There's tons of information that your oncologist isn't going to give you, but you need to know. It was a God send for us. Every cancer patient should own a copy.

Good information, and useful guide to stay healthy
We buy several of these at a time to give to our friends as they begin their journey with cancer. My Husband followed the diet in this book, and it keeps his immune system strong to fight the cancer. He was given 2 years after his lung cancer diagnoses, and this June it will be 7. Lots of useful information in this book.

After Chemotherapy, there is Hope!
If you have been diagnosed with cancer and feel that there is nothing you can do to increase your survival after treatment, read this book! I am buying one for a friend, I'd love to put one in every Oncologist office. I am going through chemotherapy right now and am incorporating these dietary and lifestyle changes. If I survive long term, I'll come back here and right an even better review!!

The shame about David Servan-Schreiber's book "Anticancer" is that if you don't have cancer, you're unlikely to read it.

It's a shame because the book's recommendations for lifestyle changes apply to everyone, whether you're battling cancer or not.

Besides, everyone has cancer cells and everyone is bombarded with carcinogenes, so it behooves us to do all we can to protect our health in the face of these internal and external threats.

Besides, everyone has cancer cells and everyone is bombarded with carcinogenes, so it behooves us to do all we can to protect our health in the face of these internal and external threats.

Servan-Schreiber covers an enormous amount of ground in 220 pages, dispensing advice in the areas of diet, meditation, spirituality, exercise, and even cell phone use (thank you, Devra Davis).

But only on the topic of diet and nutrition does he really go into depth, and here even people well-read on the topic might learn a thing or two. For instance, did you know that cooked tomatoes offer more lycopene, especially when they're cooked in olive oil?

"Anticancer," though, is mainly a repackaging and compiling of some of the most common-sense ideas out there.

Unfortunately, most people never stop to consider these ideas, which explains why we have epidemics of cancer, diabetes and obesity in our country, not to mention of personal and family dysfunction.

This was one of the first books on Cancer that I read that I found very hopeful. The conversational tone and the positive outlook of the author made for a read that was informative without being weighed down by cold scientific data. I especially liked the portion about how diet can significantly affect one's chances with various forms of Cancer.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone whose life has been touched by the subject. ...more

Literally Life Changing!
Literally Life Changing! Seriously, like not using those words flippantly. I've always viewed people who eat organic, grass-fed, blah-blah, as people who just had money to blow or just REALLY cared about the environment, but now, I GET IT. I started reading this book because a) I wanted to eat "healthier" after the birth of my second child, but didn't want to do some fad diet and 2) my husband had a relapse of thyroid cancer and when your husband has cancer twice, as the author mentions, you want to do everything you can to make sure it doesn't happen again again.

Fighting Cancer
This is a well-written book written by a cancer survivor.
His basic explanation of what cancer is and how it grows was easy to grasp. If a reader understands that, everything else in this book will fall into place.
The author cites a large of amount of research in discussing the effects of lifestyle vs. genetics and how that relates to cancer.
I found the portions regarding "terrain" to be intriguing. He wrote about everything: nutrition, exercise, psychology, meditation.....
I bought this book after reading another book that referenced some of this book's material.
I recommend this book for anyone interested in a multi-faceted anti-cancer book.

I can't begin to tell all that this book meant to me during my cancer fight. I stumbled across it a few days after my diagnosis. I wasn't looking for a cancer book. Yet, it changed my life.

This book showed me that I can do things to stay healthy, despite doctors saying there's nothing I could do. I still had to do six rounds of chemotherapy and surgery but this book still gave me valuable information and I think helped me stay alive.

This book showed me that I can do things to stay healthy, despite doctors saying there's nothing I could do. I still had to do six rounds of chemotherapy and surgery but this book still gave me valuable information and I think helped me stay alive.

The book follows Dr. Servan-Schreiber's story of his own "accidental" discovery of cancer and going in then out of remission. With that said, he backs up all his points with research. What are his major points?

That we create/nurture the "terrain" of our bodies or immune systems by what we eat, how much we exercise and how we manage stress. I am over-simplifying but you'll have to read the book to get the details.

It's been three years since my stage 4 diagnosis and I still follow everything that's in this book. One part that I think is weak: Dr. Servan-Schreiber was not a religious person so his focus on the spiritual aspect is really centered on yoga and more of a new age philosophy. As a Christian, I believe Christianity has a whole lot more to give.

Don't think you have to be a cancer patient to buy this. If you want to live healthy and keep disease away, buy this book. I am pretty much a skeptic when it comes to self-help, cure-all philosophies but this is not one of those. Just buy the book. ...more

I like to think that changing the terrain of my body ...
I read this while going through cancer treatment. Took the author's recommendations and changed my diet and lifestyle and went from Stage IV Bladder Cancer (with 20+ tumors in my body) to full remission. While I also had chemotherapy, I like to think that changing the terrain of my body helped my body to beat the cancer. Now that I am in remission, I follow these guidelines to stay in remission. Dr. Servan-Schreiber's book is very well researched and well written. I have bought additional copies and given them to friends and family dealing with cancer.

He has a great story. However
He has a great story. However, he recommends tofu and canola oil! My research to date tells me to avoid these like the plague. So, I can't recommend this.

Dissapointing
This book summarizes what has already become common knowledge to most people interested in this area. I was expecting a book of higher scientific rigor from an MD/PhD, even if it's intended for the layperson.

Invaluable, fact-based insights on how to make your body an inhospitable environment for cancer cells
Since my second breast cancer diagnosis in December I've read everything I can get my hands on the best ways to prevent recurrence / metastases, and this book is by far the most valuable. I love that he provides clear, scientific, data-based insight on why certain foods feed cancer and others fight it (e.g., why grass fed beef is best is not only about avoiding hormones and chemicals, it's also about naturally cancer-fighting elements of the grass feed). Would highly recommend to anyone interested in using their cancer diagnosis/surgery as an open door to a new way of living.

The further I read into this book, the more skeptical I became--which is a shame, because Dr Servan-Schreiber with his unique perch as physician, research scientist and cancer patient would, I thought, be the perfect person to sift the solid science from wishful thinking and outright quackery but...

This book is rated as high as it is because nothing in his proposed program could do harm (the mindset being a different story) and I couldn't help being fascinated by parts and moved by others. Servan-Schreiber with his background as a research scientist was lucid and engaging in describing cancer's mechanisms and cancer research. I loved reading about "mighty mouse"--the mouse seemingly immune to cancer. I had to agree after reading those early chapters that "cancer is a fascinating and perverse phenomenon." And I couldn't help but be moved and inspired by many of the stories--not just his own but that of naturalist Stephen Jay Gould who against the odds beat his own cancer, and Jacqueline, a cancer patient who found reserves of strength in practicing karate with fellow cancer patients.

How could I not be moved? I was diagnosed with Stage Three Breast cancer in September of last year. In the preceding months I've undergone months of chemotherapy, a mastectomy, radiation treatments and will continue getting infusions of Herceptin until this October. And I've met far too many cancer patients who are on their second or third round with cancer. I don't want to go through all this again--thus the appeal of the promise of the title. I could certainly identify with and understand so much the people in these pages went through--and I get the fierce hope that you could take your destiny in your own hands--that you can beat back your body's betrayal. Feeling in control is so very important to you. I get that.

But there's a flip side to that which isn't so positive. I've encountered people certainly who believe the patient should be blamed for their cancer. In a review of mine critical of one health guru I was told straight out that I should listen to this author--that it was my lifestyle that had made me sick. I believe Servan-Schreiber plays into this with his insistence on the "mind/body connection"--this idea, or at least implication--that if you succumb you had not just the wrong lifestyle but the wrong attitude. Ironically Servan-Schreiber's own careful tending of his "terrain" did not stop him from dying of cancer some years ago. Humans are mortal--that's not under our control and sometimes when it comes to cancer we lose--and it's not our fault.

And there's another problem with this kind of view--that cancer is under our control and would be prevented if only the medical and pharmaceutical establishment would acknowledge the truth. To Servan-Schreiber's credit he emphasizes the importance of conventional therapy, and emphasizes his prescriptions are meant to be complimentary, not alternatives. In the book Herceptin, one of the drugs I'm taking, is described as "a revolutionary drug qualified in 2005 as a 'major turning point in the eradication of suffering and death from cancer.'" I'm expected to survive this--and for that I credit the achievements of those lambasted pillars of the medical and pharmaceutical establishment. But in these past months I've met more than one cancer patient who have refused not just (admittedly scary and debilitating) chemotherapy but the relatively low-risk/high benefit radiation and hormone treatments. Who have told me that people like my oncologist are shills for the pharmaceutical companies and "don't you know what they give you in chemo is poison?" I do know--that's the point--it poisons the cancer. Yes, it poisons the patient as well--but we have the better chance of bouncing back.

So I worry books like these contribute to the paranoia, the distrust of life-saving medicines. All the more because in the end Servan-Schreiber struck me as ultimately far too credulous--there seemed to be no cause of cancer ever put out there from cell phones to deodorants to Teflon pans he wouldn't credit--ditto any purported alternate therapies down to that of shamans and Tibetan monks. Servan-Schreiber takes seriously T. Colin Campbell, a doctrinaire vegetarian and author of The China Study--a controversial figure but Servan-Schrieber skips the controversy. I just never got the sense in this book that evidence on the other side was considered beyond the quick dismissing of straw men. Some of what he cautions against might cause cancer, some of what he advises might be protective--my point is in the end I felt no confidence he could help me sort out which.

However, as I wrote above, at least the prescriptions themselves would do little harm--except maybe to your wallet--organic food and cosmetics, water filters... Much of the advice is what any doctor would tell you--avoid processed foods, consume plenty of veggies, fruit, tea, fish rich in Omega-3, get plenty of sunshine and exercise. No, the seductive dangers of the book are more subtle than that. ...more

the author missed a major nutritional strategy
While I applaud the author for surviving cancer for 15 years with a nutritional therapy (among other things), I believe he missed a major nutritional strategy - the elimination of as many carbohydrates as possible.

The author discusses Nobel prize winning Otto Warburg on page 67. Warburg showed that almost all cancer cells need glucose to live and grow. But the author doesn't take this evidence any further.

It seems to me, as well as many others, that restricting consuming carbohydrates to a minimum is a prudent dietary strategy for dealing with cancer. Ideally, a low carbohydrate diet would eliminate all grains, potatoes, sugars and any other food that contains much carboydrate. Please look up Dr. Thomas Seyfried at BC and/or Dominic D’Agostino at USF for the science behind this and/or check out The Cantin Ketogenic Diet: For Cancer, Type 1 & 2 Diabetes, Epilepsy & Other Ailments for anecdotal evidence.

Older information
I ordered this due to the amazing reviews but the buyers need to know that this is a revised edition from a 2007 that was updated in 2009. There have been several major discoveries since 2009. So although this is a helpful book for the prevention of cancer, I purchased it because my husband has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer and this book is not up to date enough to include some of the new ideas that have been helping.

Common knowledge
This book gives basic common knowledge any educated high school student knows. I was expecting to find a new light in cure of cancer not prevention of it. Also this book has not information coming from an MD/PhD but more likely from an average person that could be me. I knew every fact that was written in this book. Nothing new......

This book saved my life
I had a rare, highly aggressive disease that was unlikely to be cured. When I read this book, I was told treatment wasn't working and I would need an unlikely surgery. As I prepared for surgery, I read this book and for the first time felt like I had some control over what happened next. I loved all the science and evidence.

Long after the surgery was a success and treatment completed, I followed the recommendations in the book. While diet and exercise were important, it was meditation that opened the door to many subtle and off the beaten track treatments, modalities and practices that really brought me health. There is a reason the book says to do all the recommendations and not just eat well or exercise.

Please: Save yourself four years scouring Medline and buy this book. Four years is approximately the amount of time it took for me to find about half of the scientific literature in this book. Later, if anyone says "But there's no scientific evidence that you can fight cancer naturally!" you'll be armed with a tome of evidence to the contrary.

The author is a straddler, and I admit I'm partial to straddlers.

Four years is approximately the amount of time it took for me to find about half of the scientific literature in this book. Later, if anyone says "But there's no scientific evidence that you can fight cancer naturally!" you'll be armed with a tome of evidence to the contrary.

The author is a straddler, and I admit I'm partial to straddlers. His expertise and experience have made him someone who comfortably straddles the worlds of academic research, the medical community, pharmacological research, and natural agents that fight disease. He knows enough about each culture to tell readers why there are certain gaps in the knowledge of each.

Anti Cancer is all around excellent scientific writing, some of the best I've read this year. The author has a tremendous talent for distilling complex ideas into clear, concise sentences and reinforcing them with diagrams and images that make scientific points clear to people with no prior information on how cells work, for example, or how our immune systems work. The author would be a great teacher (if he's not already).

Most importantly (to me), Anti Cancer is not chock full of pat statements akin to "This natural thing works. Really!" Wholly unsubstantiated claims from naturopaths disappoint me no less than deceptive statements from big pharma. I need the why and the how of something in order to believe in it, and this book is full of why and how. In Anti Cancer, there is never a claim that something works without an immediately ensuing explanation of why and how it works: One of many excellent examples is "How green tea, and specific kinds of green tea in particular, stop angiogenesis in tumors and the conditions under which it works best."

In addition, I am pleased with the author's comfort with gray areas, which is what most of life's more complicated aspects have. Our culture (and U.S. culture is the only one I can speak to) seems uncomfortable with these, and whole segments of the populace seem to want the comfort of "In all cases, THIS is the right thing to do."

Instead of reinforcing this, the author explains that he has experienced and still advocates traditional cancer treatments, and he is also comfortable with stating the benefits of natural treatments of cancer without claiming that they can cure cancer completely. The author is comfortable stating the problems with processed food and meat while also acknowledging studies that show that the type of meat (grass fed vs. not, for instance) makes a difference. Claims like this may disappoint more hardcore vegan readers.

Which brings me to my last accolade: The author is comfortable and honest about the limitations of knowledge, while also stating what is known and not shying away from that gap. He does not tend toward extremism or what I'm starting to call the militant religiosity of certain beliefs, which we see in regard to organic vs. GMO food; natural childbirth vs. hospital birth; immunization benefits vs. drawbacks; and all sorts of other aspects of daily life. This is a welcome relief from the usual level of discourse that posits things in either-or relationships vs. "both" and "maybe" and "sometimes."

Everyone can benefit from reading this book. At the very least, you'll learn how your immune system works and how to strengthen it to fight not just cancer, but many diseases. ...more

A good reminder of what you already know
This book includes a lot of what we already know and offers good advice and reminders about the benefits of a healthy diet and meditation. The reason I gave it two stars is that it seems to sum up every example cleanly and perfectly. "He ate berries, meditated, and lived an extra five years." I agree with much of the book, but there was one story that was especially disturbing, and if true, I hope the victim got additional counseling. The author explained that he was counseling a woman who was abused by her father in perverse ways as a six-year-old child. She then came to realize, with the author's help, that her father must have been in pain himself. The woman then felt sorry for her abusive father and forgave him. I hope to God the author has given up emotional counseling, because his reaction to, and summary of, that woman's experience haunts me to this day. Some things should not be resolved so easily. I think the author should stick to berries and meditation.

Green tea and turmeric? We won't go another day without these in my household. Shiitake and maitake mushrooms? They taste better than those plain, old, white ones, anyway. Dark chocolate that's at least 70% cocoa? Beautiful.

It's a start
This book had a lot of fluff and very little I didn't already know. There was a lot about the authors experiences which didnt add much helpful content or knowledge. if my life depended on it, and it does, my trust would be in Dr. Joe Furman's book Super Immunity. So far the best health book in my opinion. It doesn't address just cancer but overall health-- which IS Anti Cancer. its a start in the right direction so there is some value in this book.
